    Refrigerator Poem

    "I love my refrigerator! The doors are such a terrific surface..." Alex Noble


    Child of avocado
    and auto-mobile
    somewhere inside you
    burns a blue flame.

    Flower Poem

    This is a poem about a flower.
    But fear not!
    In it, you will not find:

    singsong rhymes,
    a stating of the obvious (Gerty),
    invisible worms, or
    suggestive metaphors
    of a spiritual, sexual, or national
    nature.

    The flower in it
    will not be used to sell:
    soda, cars, hygiene products
    (feminine, masculine, or otherwise),
    air “fresheners”, ideologies or
    underwear.

    It goes like this:

    dear Little Flower,
    - although i can’t
    possibly imagine you -
    there you are
    in front of me.


    Note to the Gentle Reader: The following poems were commissioned by Richard Yurman, Creative Writing Professor, Skyline Community College and were submitted to the said college's literary journal, which surprisingly rejected them (and sort of violently, at that). However, they are now available for the first time in my book Twenty-Seven Poems on Andy Warhol. For information on purchasing copies or to set up a reading, please contact my agent, Peter Duong. -SC
